A Back-To-School DIY Project

 

Very inexpensive 

Fun for all ages

Useful

and Thoughtful

 

With a few inexpensive supplies, some that you already have around the house, anyone can create a Composition Notebook Journal for school or to make as a gift. 

Requires Only:

(1) Composition Notebook – the hardback black and white kind for about 50 cents during pre-school sales

(2) Two or more pieces of scrapbook paper

(3) Stickers and Ribbon

(4) Glue Stick and Scissors

Trace around the front and back of the book. I don’t cover over the black spine.

Cut out and glue in place. (Ideal for little hands to practice trace, cut, and glue)

The inside front and back cover can also be covered with paper.

I was going to use lavender for the front of my journal but, of course, I changed my mind and used periwinkle.

   Then design the cover. 

And don’t forget to give your journal a ribbon bookmark. Use a large sticker to attach the ribbon to the back of the book. 

  A finished journal ready to use.

Autumn made one, too.

 The inside pages can also get some special touches.

 

I’d love to see your journal.

Submitted by Pam from An Artful Mom. She had the journal book cut in half at a copy store to make two smaller journals.
